After receiving his FWA award in central London on Thursday night, Mohamed Salah insisted that a quadruple is on the cards for Liverpool.
The Football Writers’ Association, a group of around 400 journalists, nominated the Liverpool striker for Footballer of the Year for the second time after his win in 2017-18.
After receiving the trophy from Reds legend Ian Rush, Egyptian star Salah insisted that Jurgen Klopp’s men can still win the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup, and League Cup all in the same season.
‘It feels great,’ he said. First and foremost, I’d like to thank everyone who voted for me.
Of course, journalists are an important part of the football family, and we hope to win some more this season.

‘(Does the quadruple make sense?) I believe so. Not everything is in our hands; we must win our Premier League games and wait to see if City drops points.
They have a fantastic team and a fantastic manager, and I’m sure they want to keep winning. But it’s not impossible.
‘First, we have to finish our Premier League games, and then we’ll see.’
We have four games left, and City has four games left in which they can drop points as well. We just need to concentrate on the Spurs game and move on from there.
‘After five years together, we know what it takes to win.’
We came back from a 2-0 deficit away from home in our last game. That’s crucial for our mentality heading into the next games. We have the mentality that we can win any trophy.’
And Salah went on to say that the Champions League final against Real Madrid on May 28 will be a “revenge mission” for his team, after he was carried off injured after a bad tackle in the 2018 final, which the Spanish side won 3-1.
‘I’m so excited, and I’m sure the team is as well,’ he added.
They’ve beaten a lot of good teams, so I’m sure it’ll be a tough game. We only need to concentrate on the game.
‘(Is this a vengeance mission?) Yeah. Yes, we lost in the (2018) final, and it was a heartbreaking day for all of us. It’s time for vengeance.’
